    Best Country Song of All Time



    Sometimes, when I'm being crushed by broken bones, kidney stones, and infections, I like to get back to my roots.

    If anybody asks what country music sounds like, this is it.

    I'm not a huge Country fan but I really enjoyed several of Malcolm Gladwell's podcasts on the subject.

    “Oh Lonesome Me”
    “Hey Good Lookin’”
    “Crazy”
    “Folsom Prison Blues”
    “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow”
    “Coat of Many Colors”
    “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain”

    Can’t go too far wrong with any of those...

    I listen to Roadhouse radio on XM and it takes me back to 1979 riding in the car going to grandmas house with th3 windows rolled up and dad chain smoking.

    Jolene, Wichita Lineman.

    He Stopped Loving Her Today is up there.

    Also loved Willie's cover of Always on My Mind- I play his version on piano, it is beautifully written.

    That all may be true, but as of the moment I posted it, that song was the best country song of all time. Now that the pain's letting up a bit, I might go back to some Roger Miller or something.

    As Hank III sings, pop country really sucks.

    How about You Never Call Me by Steve Goodman and unofficially John Prine and made somewhat famous By David Allen Coe? It even says so right in the song. It has all the requisite topics all in one verse. I mean, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison......
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
